Incline towards nurse (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tend

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'incline' is the definition.
(I know that incline can be written as tend)

'towards nurse' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'nurse' could be 'en' (abbreviation for enrolled nurse) and 'en' is found in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for tend that I've seen before include "Incline, lean" , "Look after (someone)" , "Be inclined - look after" , "lean in a certain direction" , "Be predisposed or inclined" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
